7 common errors your PC will not catch

The Proof Angel

People say that technology is making people redundant all over the place.

Well, automated things can do a lot, but at the moment you still get howlers like these:

  • nursing the accurately ill. We meant acutely.
  • the quorum for any meeting is three, of which two should be present. I have to say, you have to be careful of your audience when you are telling that joke. Not everyone knows what quorum means. One lady told me that she knew quorum means 4, but sometimes it seems other people don’t know that.  Hmm.

Anyway, for anyone who is convinced that auto correct will pick up all your little wobbles, here are seven common errors that aren’t going to be picked up.

  1. Hello Lynette, thank you for the interesting posts you share.

    I have to disagree with the second point of this article. “Quorum” does not mean “4.” Having served as president of two governing boards in my lifetime, and being familiar with the Robert’s Rules of Order, I know that a “quorum” is when you have the minimum number of persons present for a meeting. This minimum number varies with the particular organization. Usually, the quorum is a bare majority. Without a quorum, votes and governing decisions are not legal or binding on the organization.
